Rodman Cries on Television After Trump-Kim Handshake

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have shaken hands to mark the start of a summit in Singapore, the first ever meeting between a USA and North Korean leader.

Mr Kim arrived in town on Sunday for a historic summit on Tuesday with US President Donald Trump to discuss possible denuclearisation efforts.

With less than 24 hours until his historic face-to-face encounter with Kim, Trump spent his Monday in Singapore fuming on Twitter over his weekend trade spat with G-7 allies and paying a visit to Singapore's prime minister.

"The ultimate objective we seek from diplomacy with North Korea has not changed - the complete, verifiable and irreversible de-nuclearization of the Korea peninsula is only outcome that the United States will accept", declared Pompeo.

The summit continues to be a highly sensitive topic in North Korea.

The country has diplomatic ties with both North Korea and the US.

He expressed hope that Mr Trump and Mr Kim would be able to make progress.

Karen Leong, Managing Director of Singapore-headquartered Influence Solutions, said Trump did not display any of the hostility seen at the G7 summit in Canada last week, during which the US leader blasted allies including the European Union and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over trade.

Mr Trump said he felt "really great" about the meeting.

Both sides were finalizing preparations for the unprecedented summit, which was to kick off at 9 a.m. Tuesday with a handshake between Trump and Kim, an image sure to be devoured around the world.

Before the summit meeting, Trump called the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, and the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, to brief them on developments.

The talks - unimaginable just a few months ago - will focus on North Korea's controversial nuclear programme.

The lunch, which followed a 45-minute one-on-one meeting between the leaders earlier in the morning and bilateral discussion with senior aides, was held at the Capella Hotel on Singapore's Sentosa Island. "And it's my honour and we will have a terrific relationship I have no doubt".

Despite the comments being largely a repeat of previously expressed concerns by Trudeau, they earned a furious rebuke from both the president and his advisors, who quickly pulled the US away from endorsing a joint statement released by rest of the G-7 allies.

Moments later, however, the two men went their separate ways, without signing any document, leaving in their wake a crackle of expectation around a summit that mixed Mr. Trump's flair for reality television with the high stakes of nuclear politics.

"If you're friends, then you don't have to arm yourselves and point weapons at each other", he said.
